Expanding my Jewellery collection with Thomas Sabo

As someone who doesn’t wear a lot of jewellery it’s not very often I actually buy anything for myself. In fact I think the last time I purchased any new jewellery was when I brought matching necklaces for myself and my two bridesmaids as a thank you for all of their help with the arrangements for very last minute wedding.


That being said, I feel like I seem to have taken a lot more interest in jewellery of late, and wanted to slowly start getting a little collection of good quality pieces together, that complemented my somewhat minimalist style. The necklace I mentioned earlier holds quite a lot of sentimental value to me, so my focus was to start adding rings and earrings to my assortment of jewellery.


It would appear that the internet gremlins must have heard me, because I soon started seeing various ads for jewellery in my news feed, and one of those ads was for a brand I have already come across before; Thomas Sabo. I’ve previously had their lovely charm bracelet (which I still have lurking around somewhere and must dig out!) back when I wanted a charm bracelet, but everyone at the time seemed to be wearing Pandora, so I wanted something a little more unique.   


Thomas Sabo was founded back in 1984, and by the end of the 80’s had developed into an established and successful brand. To this day Thomas Sabo is still renowned for its sterling silver collection, although silver is not the only colour they offer, they have plenty of gold jewellery too. Much of their jewellery will comprise of sets and themes, to allow you to mix and match various pieces of jewellery to something you love.


One thing that did make me hesitate a little before buying anything was the returns policy. Sadly the store local to me in Norwich has closed permanently, leaving no other option but to purchase online without the opportunity to try things like rings on first. Should you order a piece of jewellery and it not fit, or be otherwise unsuitable, their returns policy does not allow you to exchange it.


Instead, you have to return the item, wait for your refund to credit back to you and then repurchase the item again. This isn’t the most convenient policy from the customer perspective, and I feel an exchange policy would be much better – even if your new item won’t be shipped until the original is received. However, I decided to take a chance after borrowing a friends ring sizer to get an idea of what size I needed.


The sizing for rings are not the same as I’ve previously come across. In the UK we tend to go by letters, whereas you select your sizing on the Thomas Sabo website from a series of numbers, Never fear though, as they have a comprehensive size guide on their website. Once ordered the ring arrived earlier than predicted, which was a nice surprise. Given all the problems the UK is having with getting things shipped from the EU I was honestly expecting it to turn up late.


Upon opening up my jewellery I found it to be well packaged in terms of safety and protection for the item within, but the packaging around the ring itself was lovely. The ring came presented in a little black and white box and is packaged in such a way that it’s good to go if purchased as a gift for someone.


The size was spot on and exactly what I expected, so in my admittedly limited I would say the measurements are true to size. The ring itself is also exactly what I expected and absolutely beautiful, while still being quite subtle in design. I’ve already got my eye on several other pieces on the Thomas Sabo site to add to my collection.


Have you ever come across Thomas Sabo? If not I would highly recommend you check them out!
